Mr,

in Firefox, click: Tools> Add-ons> Themes tab. Drag and drop the extracted grafire.jar file to the Themes window...

Don't forget to follow instructions in accompanying text file

cheers.

this is great.
except the ff theme and the windowblinds theme leopard2 don't blend that well. the ff theme's menubar has a warmer tone and is slightly darker

@Dave,

what sharp eyes you have! i really haven't noticed. i have to take a screencap of your image and magnify at 800x, to see what you are talking about. propbably my CRT monitor setting which is at 6500k with rgb 81 71 63.

will try to see to it. also try out other leopard wb skins from other modders...

@ dave,

sorry mate. . looking closely at your screenshot, close buttons are set differently than my skins. you are probably using a different WB skin or VS / msstyle...

Hi eamon!

Unfortunately I'm on Vista now (new notebook), but I'm still a fan of your great work! :clap:

Now, if only you could create stuff for Vista too... :lol: Vista needs more guys like you!

Yep, you're right mate, they did a 'great job', no?

7, 8, 9... :lol: I really don't know, I just installed it in a virtual pc to get a sneak peek but, so far, nothing soooo special... about it's customization facilities, I don't have a clue yet.

Cheers,
Panta.

Hi eamon,

I sent you a garbled messgagee on aquasoft so heres what I meant

There is a small error in FF3. I have switched off all the other stylish commands I had on and just have your list. Any ideas how to correct. I am using your version of gummy too.

Regards

Gogsy

gogs,

you probably have an item or items/icons placed in your bookmarks bar. it seems that the bar height is 1 or 2 pixels bigger than what i have. try removing everything except the bookmark items..

gogs,
move your CM2 icon on the buttons toolbar. the theme will automatically assign a button for it. you can also make a customized icon (16x16 px .png).

Yes! No more runny fonts in photoshop and pop-up menus. Could you tell me, what settings you've changed to resolve it? I didn't find out. Definitely a must have.

am not sure what you mean as i dont use PS. im more on GIMP and INKSCAPE. Most probably the "content margins' in buttons, tabs menus. I also changed all (except title/caption) fonts to Lucida Grande. The font width latest version (included in the pack) is a bit narrower than older ones.

You can compare the older version (if you retained your copy) and this update by opening each version's .uis files with a text editor...

Pretty good stuff. Love the default font settings in particular. Couple of suggestions:

Please include a Safari-like substyle, as Leopard no longer uses the aquadot button in the upper right corner of windows; please change the log off/shut down button icons in the start menu, as those are from the (pre-)Tiger era and don't fit the look and feel of Leopard; and please tweak the color of selected taskbar items from the current shade of blue to a closer shade of gray.

Thanks for making this, and I hope you take my suggestions!
